We were walking from Kilmainham Gaol toward our hotel, and happened on this restaurant. Very cozy atmosphere, and our waiter was excellent.

Have no complaints about the food it was lovely! But the service was a bit slow at times even though it wasn't that busy and we had to ask for our change as they seemed to presume that we were going to give them a 50% tip?!

We were referred to this restaurant for dinner from the Bellman at the Ashling - it was walking distance. The food was good and the service good. It was a neighborhood pub with locals from the neighborhood.

I stopped here for a meal , I had Dingle fish bites for starters, Guinness to help wash it down. I then had Coddle for mains. Really enjoyed the Dublin cuisine, bar staff were friendly and up for a bit of crack.
